Limited Edition Gilt Spider-Man Amazing Fantasy #15
Size: H21.5cm including base x 17cm x 19.5cm
A limited edition of 200 individually numbered pieces worldwide.
In 1962, Amazing Fantasy #15 introduces Spider-Man, one of Marvel’s most popular characters, to the public for the first time, with Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby’s action-packed cover art a clear advertisement of Peter Parker’s superpowers.
Illustrator Alan Quah and sculptor Ghim Ong’s thrilling interpretation sees Spider-Man, cast in pewter and gilded in 24K gold, leap from the cover, the bonded porcelain figure of a terrified mobster firmly in his grasp.
In 2011, the landmark issue, which tells the webslinger’s origin story, becomes the second comic book to cross the US$1 million threshold at auction.
Alan Quah is a respected illustrator in the international comics and collectibles communities. Ghim Ong’s strong interest in 3D sculpting has led to his working on Marvel, DC and Disney properties.
